Z value

Have a 3d file that someone forgot to set the z value to 0 and turn the depth lock on.  Now I have cells and lines at all depths.  Anyone know a fast way to move all lines to a 0 Z value without doing them one by one?

RE: Z value


RE: Z value

Put a fence around all elements and use fence/scale.
Set x=1, y=1, z=0.000001
That will place them almost at zero.


Save to 2d file then reference to 3d file and copy into 3d file.  If you don't need 3d, leave it as 2d.
